I thought some folks might appreciate this: it’s very brief look at what goes into creating a scar. After finalizing the design (image 1) and applying a stencil, I lightly “outline” the entire piece. After completing the outline, a topical product is applied (image 2) that drastically minimizes discomfort and bleeding. Then I begin to sculpt the piece by cutting deeper, varying depth to create different line weights (image 3), and then tissue is removed where needed, leaving us with our breathtaking final product (image 4). This piece is Chad’s, but I’d love to work with you to design your perfect piece!
You can absolutely place scarification over existing scars. The existing scars are still in place but the new scar easily becomes the new focal point.
Hey ryanpba- you trying to be my beard buddy?
Thanks so much!
I have! NoKaOi is one of my favorite shops in the country! What did we talk about?
Thanks so much! They’re 2 1/2 inches.
Another great shot of Chad’s awesome cutting I did today. He say like a rock for 3 straight hours, and I think we’re both excited to see this piece heal.
